Paranormal is Normal – The Artistic Sleepwalker – Lee Hadwin
Since his teens Lee has walked in his sleep and then started drawing on walls and furniture. Then he started drawing horses on paper he had left lying around. One night he drew Marilyn Monroe which was very artistic and a good likeness; with some more of Marilyn a week later. That was 20 years ago and since then Lee has occasionally drawn in his sleep often after too much to drink. He is no artist during the day, the fact is that his unconscious has learned to draw very well; when he is supposed to be asleep.

For the last few years he has appeared on radio and television, and had numerous articles written in the press. Some of his drawings have been sold, with the proceeds going to various charities, including those for children and missing people. Sleepwalking tends to run in families and happens to about 10 per cent of the general population generally in children or adolescents. So it’s not normal, but certainly not the paranormal. Most people only have a few occurrences but for a few like Lee it happens repeatedly, and they may eat in their sleep, even prepare food, compose music or draw; and with practice the sleepwalking mind learns to do these things easily and well. These pictures are certainly amazing; but in no way paranormal.
